Abstract:The affordances of the internet, such as social networking sites, wikis, and various communication tools have become integral to daily life. Educators are increasingly dedicating more time to developing applications to take advantage of the Web 2.0 age for second language learning purposes. However, many applications lack a solid pedagogical foundation or evidence-based reasoning in the application’s design. This study focused on the creation of a browser-based language learning application to aid language learners’ perception of a selection of English sounds. Using the training method known as High Variability Phonetic (HVPT), this thesis will present the creation of a learning application: the English IPA Ear Trainer. This paper will also detail the creation method and timeline in order to provide instructors with a model process to aid the creation of their own language learning application.
